Re: Please Help! Mysterious wound on Ball Python's back

Wow! With the wound on his back that just about rules out a UTH/thermostat issue. How high is your humidity? Ask your vet about using burn ointment on the wound, silver sulfadiazine. I used it for a snake that escaped and was burned on the dryer vent and I personally used it for a severe road rash after a high speed bike accident years ago. It works wonders and promotes good healing. Did the vet prescribe any antibiotic or anti-inflammatory shots? I would expect it as my vet did for my one snake.
